Upcycled Vintage Automotive turned Furniture

Upcycled Vintage Automotive turned Furniture

There’s nothing quite like a good Steampunk project to get your engine revving – unless of course you’ve got a bunch of car and motorcycle parts lying around and can go the extra mile. Upcycling is one of the most awesome ways to express your love for using things twice, and with fantastically lovely looking vehicle parts like this, furniture pieces never looked so hardcore! Classified Moto brings you their own unique take on the current state of industrial auto furniture and accessories here.

Redesigned Nomad Lamp

Redesigned Nomad Lamp

Designed to meet the needs of families without access to electricity in developing countries, the Nomad is an all-around great multi-use lamp that is both durable and super-efficient. Simply leav it in the sun and go on about your day… by nighttime you’ll have light at the brightest setting for up to 6 hours!

Dang The Radiated Illumination

Dang The Radiated Illumination

I have seen radiators repurposed as towel dryers and mimicked as mugs, but this is my first lamp! Radiant Floor Lamp features an array of lamp elements, modeled after standard-sized fluorescent U-bulbs. As Steve explains, “The path from electricity to light is controlled by a standard water spigot valve handle.” Love it!

Modern Lantern

Modern Lantern

Lampe H is a super-modern lighting solution that gives a slight nod to the old-school lantern. Similar to a kerosene lantern, the user turns a simple knob to activate on/off functionality and can transport the lightweight lamp anywhere with its thin handle. Probably not the best for camping, but it will look great inside!

Only Manta

Only Manta

A proud moment for James Cameron and his path breaking dive into the Marina Trench! While we still come to grips with the implication of his journey, it’s quite apparent than our fascination nature and the elements have a deep-rooted effect on inspiration. Take for example the Manta Pendant Lamp; clearly inspired by the beautiful fish, this gorgeous lamp is not only a design exercise but also a statement of our passion for exploration.

Gotta love this straightforward desk lamp design! One look at the Slide Lamp and the user will instantly understand how to adjust it. The aluminum base and natural oak components form a triangle with slots that make it easy to slide elements and adjust the lamp’s height and position.

Modern Meets Vintage

Modern Meets Vintage

A part of the “Successful Living” collection by the Diesel Creative Team, the floor and pendant Cage lamps reflect both modern pop culture and vintage style influences. Smooth, bright colored shades contrast with dark, heavy-duty wire, making it an aesthetically sensible choice for both contemporary settings and industrial spaces alike.

Secret Sculptural Lighting

Secret Sculptural Lighting

Free of joints, the Pureness lamp looks like sculptural decor at first glance, but turn it on and it’s near-invisible, flexible LEDs will provide an unexpected glow to light up any room. A clean, elegant design perfect for the modern office or minimal studio.

Lighting Lab

I love the obvious inspiration behind this one-of-a-kind lamp design by Michael Samoriz. The Microscope LED Lamp aims to inspire designers, artists and other creatives to view their desk not merely as a desk, but as a laboratory where they can experiment with imagination.

The Plug Lamp

The Plug Lamp

Doesn’t it seem like it’s impossible to find an open outlet when you need one?! The Plug Lamp provides a clever (and cute) solution to this problem by incorporating an outlet into the base so power is always handy!

Design Adventures

Design Adventures

The team at Note Design Studio really like to get their hands dirty when they’re hunting for a little creativity. For the Marginal Notes collection here, they ventured deep into the forest, encountering everything from strange characters to abandoned construction sites… all of which become the unique inspirations for this adventurous collection. Hit the jump to learn the story behind each piece!

Power - When You Need It

Power – When You Need It

Blessed with uninterrupted power supply in a city like Mumbai, its ironic that the capital city of New Delhi has to rely on invertors because of the frequent outages. Lights, fans and appliances are no longer the basics, it’s stuff like cellphones, laptops and portable devices that demand energy consumption in a average household. Addressing this need to bridge the gap of supply and consumption is the Ovia, a power reserve that illuminates and juices up devices when needed.

One Sharp Lamp

One Sharp Lamp

The Delta lamp’s slim, sleek appearance and straightforward functionality make it a great desktop lighting solution for the minimal office. The modern aesthetic is complimented by a classic chevron shaped “shade” that houses its ultra-thin but powerful LED light strip. The chevron wing can be rotated up, down or 360 degrees around to cast light in any direction without moving the entire unit. Love it in white!
